Prohibited to (DE,ME,NC,NH&WV, and by permit only to MA and NJ)
Outstanding aromatic flavor distinguishes this variety. The medium size, sweet yellow-green berry has a luscious aftertaste reminiscent of apricot. The bush is low growing with a spreading habit. The fruit ripens in mid-July. The bush is somewhat mildew resistant and extremely winter hardy. It comes to us from Finland.
Gooseberries, highly prized in Europe as an important part of a well-rounded garden, have been sadly neglected in America, perhaps because people remember gooseberries as tart and mouth puckering. But sweet varieties are wonderful for fresh eating, and Raintree offers outstanding Canadian and European cultivars not usually available in the U.S. Gooseberries generally ripen in July. We offer well-rooted, one-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8.
